Chapel

I feel that my chapel drawing was a great help to my proportion of my drawings.  This is because with the chapel you had to make sure that everything fits on the page with it being proportional.  I believe that my drawing turned out very well considering how much detail was needed in this picture.

Pen and Ink

I feel that my pen and ink project turned out surprisingly well do to it being the first time I have ever done anything involving pen and ink.  I feel that the toughest part about this project was controlling how much ink to use when making certain thickness of lines.  Over the whole project I began to eventually get the hang of the pen and ink techniques, and I look forward to doing more activities using my new skills.

Still Life

Over the last week I feel that this project has gone quite well.  I have learned a couple things during this project.  They include shading, getting better at shadowing, and proportion.  At the beginning of this still life my proportion needed some help, but by the end I feel that I am starting to get a better scale of proportion in my drawings.  Before this project I feel that my shading was just fair but after practice with this project I now can decide what type of pencil to use and where to put the different shades.
